Marriage involves two major commitments. The first? To your partner in crime. The second is almost equally as important: the commitment you pledge to the wedding band sanctifying the bond. Letâ€™s be real: itâ€™s a piece of jewelry youâ€™re going to be wearing every day for the rest of your life. Youâ€™re going to want to find something that suits you, rain, sleet, sun, or snow.
2019 has already been a whirlwind in the fashion world; if your next bold move is inviting a piece of forever bling into your life for the rest of time, look no further. Medawar has just the wedding band trend for you.
Embellishing Your Wedding Band
If thereâ€™s one topic trendspotters seem to agree upon the board, itâ€™s this: embellishment is back. While thereâ€™s certainly an argument to be made for simplicity, recent consumer metrics note an increase in the demand for wedding bands that feature detailwork that sets them apart from the rest.
Kirk Kara is one of those designers that seems to have an intuition when it comes to a wedding band trend like this. The Carmella wedding band, a vintage-inspired piece in 18k gold, is etched with a sophisticated milgrain motif, allowing it to shine brightly, even without a center stone.
Minimal Wedding Bands
For a more subtle and understated look that will tastefully accent any outfit, choose a barely-there type of wedding band. Perfect for the girl who avoids fuss and unnecessary adornment at all cost, a minimal wedding band like the Standard Comfort-Fit wedding band by Benchmark will work itself seamlessly into her life. This wedding band trend is also an appropriate choice for one who enjoys the feeling of switching up her look regularly; an unobtrusive ring like this will be able to fit in effortlessly, no matter what you match it with.
The Warmth of Rose Gold
Rose gold generally finds itself in the limelight around this time of year. In 2019, however, the wedding band trend is hitting the bridal industry especially hard. Known for its versatility and ability to complement every skin tone (as well as jewelry comprised of a differing type of precious metal), choosing a rose gold wedding band will rarely back you into a corner, fashion-wise.
The opulent Eterna-Rose wedding band by Verragio is lavish to its core, the interwoven rose gold bands bearing one carat of diamonds total. This is to say nothing of their fabulous selection of dual-tone rose gold wedding bands in their signature style.
This one in particular has us drooling this season. With so much attention paid to the classic diamond solitaire and similar variations with matching side stones, this wedding band trend is like an oasis of relief from the ordinary.
Another stand-out from Kirk Kara: the Dahlia wedding band, studded with vibrant tsavorite. We say yes.
Stacking Your Wedding Bands
Why is this trend only just now becoming a thing? We think the concept is brilliant. Not only does a full stack create a more extravagant look overall â€“ it also allows the wearer to customize her wedding ring look day-to-day, adding and omitting as necessary.
If youâ€™re looking to capitalize on this wedding band trend, choose a few that complement one another but can just as easily stand alone. We love the combination of the Insignia wedding band by Verragio and this stunning diamond ring from A. Jaffeâ€™s Metropolitan collection.
Customizing Your Wedding Rings
Tailoring you and your partnerâ€™s wedding bands gives the pieces deeper significance, and Jewelry Designer Showcase allows you to personalize their offerings with not only you and your betrothedâ€™s birthstones, but also the birthstones of your children as your family grows. This diamond wedding band is an excellent example of their best â€“ unassuming from the outside and engraved with secret meeting along the inner band.
